We Can't Stop singer Miley Cyrus wanted Nicki Minaj and Gwen Stefani to sing on her track SMS, according to Sean Garrett who co-wrote the song.

Speaking to MTV, Garrett said: "The first name that we tossed around was Gwen Stefani. We were talking about Gwen because you know Gwen got that edge too, but that's how God works. We were throwing around those ideas.

''Nicki, we were talking about putting Nicki on there too. That would've been nuts, but I think that's how God works, this was absolutely the right one.

''[The song] is like five different things, it's hip-hop, it's the girls, it's a female anthem, Salt-n-Pepa, Britney and Miley.'']

Miley recenty hit the headlines for her public spat on Twitter with Sinead O'Connor.
